I'm mildly interested but far too disorganised to actually go get a ticket. There's a very good reason NOT to leave it to ordering in person though -- they'll either sell out or you get screwed at the door. If need be, you can have your ticket delivered to my shepherds bush address.

For the amount of time you're here, it doesn't matter, really. Get a 3 sim, put 15 quid on it and you get "unlimited" internet though. As always, make sure your phone supports the relevant GSM bands (I think all modern smartphones ship with support for everything, anyway these days, though I'm open to being corrected).
